Photos: ‘Runaway Bride’ Crystal Harris trades wedding gown for bikini
By Don Chareunsy
Playboy’s “Runaway Bride” Crystal Harris traded her presumably white wedding gown for a black bikini with an apropos see-through leopard-print wrap as she soaked up the sun at Wet Republic at MGM Grand this afternoon, the exact day of her now-called-off wedding to Playboy founder and legend Hugh Hefner. Thanks to Erik Kabik for the Vegas DeLuxe photo gallery on the arrivals carpet and to Richard Corey for his video posted on YouTube.
The wedding was called off this week, too late for the production cycle of the July issue of Playboy with Harris on the cover, so a sticker with “Runaway Bride” was placed last minute over Harris’ barely covered 25-year-old body. Harris has been a fixture in Las Vegas, accompanying Hefner to town the past few years for his birthdays and the Playmate of the Year announcements for Claire Sinclair this year and Hope Dworaczyk last year.
Speaking of Sinclair, a few Playmates haven’t been shy about criticizing Harris. Sinclair, in an interview with Howard Stern, used “gold digging” and Crystal Harris in the same conversation, and Las Vegas’ Sweetheart Holly Madison has voiced her displeasure at Harris’ “disgusting” and “tacky” surfacing in Las Vegas today.
Harris’ appearance overshadowed that of afternoon hostess and reality TV star Heidi Montag. Add Montag to the hate list for Harris!
